weight-watchers pumpkin cookie recipe?

Years ago, my roommate and I used to whip up a batch of pumpkin cookies using a weight-watchers recipe. They were so low in calories we could eat all of them and not worry about gaining pounds. I remember I used canned pumpkin and various spices. Any help on finding the orginal recipe?
